Adam was born June 4, 1991 in Spirit Lake, IA to Robbin (Soat) and Dan Dreeszen. As a Shriner’s baby, Adam knew well how to overcome obstacles. He graduated from Spirit Lake High School where he was active in wrestling, football, track, and 4-H. He continued his studies at DMACC, graduating as a Certified Ford Master Technician and worked for Shade Tree Auto.
Adam married his sweetheart, Kaylee Koster on October 13, 2018. He was a devoted husband who so deeply loved his wife that only death could separate them. Adam was a hard-worker, but knew how to have fun. He enjoyed trucks, go-kart racing, long motorcycle rides, ice cream, and time with the couple’s 4-legged child, Kuma. Adam and Kaylee were active in their church and life group.
Adam is survived by his wife, Kaylee Dreeszen; parents, Dan and Robbin Dreeszen; sister, Danielle Dreeszen; parents-in-law, Don and Robin Koster; brother and sisters-in-law, Lucas (Candace) and Adam (Kayla) Koster, Lacey (Ben) Holmes, and Kane (Jennifer) Koster; and many loving family members and friends too numerous to mention.
